Northeast SARE Grantee-Produced Info Product
Expanding Winter Harvest and Sales for New England Vegetable Crops
The Winter Production, Storage and Sales website is maintained through a partnership of the UMass Extension Vegetable Program, the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension and two local food organizations, Community Involved in Sustaining Agriculture (CISA) in western MA and Seacoast Eat Local (SEL) in eastern NH. This project addresses the need for expanding winter harvests and sales for various vegetable crops in New England. The project builds upon successful innovations in cold-season growing, and focuses on aspects of production and storage that need further development to strengthen this aspect of the regional food system.
The Winter Production, Storage and Sales website includes detailed information and resources on low tunnels, winter storage and winter marketing strategies, as well as videos on hoop house construction and management. More information will be added as it is developed.
